We present the ALOI collection of 1,000 objects recorded under various imaging circumstances. In order to capture the sensory variation in object recordings, we systematically varied viewing angle, illumination angle, and illumination color for each object, and additionally captured wide-baseline stereo images. We recorded over a hundred images of each(More)
We introduce the challenge problem for generic video indexing to gain insight in intermediate steps that affect performance of multimedia analysis methods, while at the same time fostering repeatability of experiments. To arrive at a challenge problem, we provide a general scheme for the systematic examination of automated concept detection methods, by(More)
This paper studies automatic image classification by modeling soft assignment in the popular codebook model. The codebook model describes an image as a bag of discrete visual words selected from a vocabulary, where the frequency distributions of visual words in an image allow classification. One inherent component of the codebook model is the assignment of(More)
This paper introduces a method for scene categorization by modeling ambiguity in the popular codebook approach. The codebook approach describes an image as a bag of discrete visual codewords, where the frequency distributions of these words are used for image categorization. There are two drawbacks to the traditional codebook model: codeword uncertainty and(More)
In this paper, we compare local colour descriptors to grey-value descriptors. We adopt the evaluation framework of Mikolayzcyk and Schmid. We modify the framework in several ways. We decompose the evaluation framework to the level of local grey-value invariants on which common region descriptors are based. We compare the discriminative power and invariance(More)
For the modeling of materials, the mapping of image features onto a codebook of feature representatives receives extensive treatment. For reason of their generality and simplicity, filterbank outputs are commonly used as features. The MR8 filterbank of Varma and Zisserman is performing well in a recent evaluation. In this paper, we construct color invariant(More)
ÐThis paper presents the measurement of colored object reflectance, under different, general assumptions regarding the imaging conditions. We exploit the Gaussian scale-space paradigm for color images to define a framework for the robust measurement of object reflectance from color images. Object reflectance is derived from a physical reflectance model(More)
In this paper we describe our TRECVID 2005 experiments. The UvA-MediaMill team participated in four tasks. For the detection of camera work (runid: A CAM) we investigate the benefit of using a tessellation of detectors in combination with supervised learning over a standard approach using global image information. Experiments indicate that average precision(More)
In computer vision, measurement of image properties such as color or texture is essential. In this paper, we propose a solid framework for the local measurement of texture in color images. We give a physical basis for the integration of the well-known Gabor filters with the measurement of color. Our method implies that the color–texture is measured in the(More)
Can a machine learn to perceive emotions as evoked by an artwork? Here we propose an emotion categorization system, trained by ground truth from psychology studies. The training data contains emotional valences scored by human subjects on the International Affective Picture System (IAPS), a standard emotion evoking image set in psychology. Our approach is(More)
